With the results of its $33 million budget staring me square in the face - Pandorum was definitely one of those predictable Sci-Fi/Horror stories that had its fair share of both good & bad points to boast about.

Unfortunately, (in the end) it was this film's overbearing mediocrity that out-weighed its potential brilliance, time and again.

When it came to Pandorum's brutal violence, much-too-much emphasis was placed on its rapid-fire editing. And, sure enough, this novelty became somewhat tiresome after a short while.

Pandorum also lost significant points due to the unimaginative look of its ravenous cannibals. In the long run, these creatures were neither frightening nor were they at all original in their overall appearance.

All-in-all - Pandorum's story of paranoia, claustrophobia, and playing a very deadly game of hide-n-seek was just too convoluted for its own good.

And, finally - With Pandorum's story ending in the year 2174 (Earth's calendar) and Year One on Tanis, I couldn't help but wonder just how long it would take for man to completely defile this virgin frontier and literally ruin it just like he's inevitably ruined this Earth..... Hey! I'm not being a pessimist here. I'm being a realist.

I wasn’t expecting too much from this movie and was blown away with what I watched. This is an excellent sci\horror movie that is a real thrill ride. Sure there are some holes in things but overall I really enjoyed, enjoyed it so much that I even watched the featurettes which I never do.

Interesting premise that gets confusing after the first third of the film. It could helped to have a few more rewrites to make the story a bit clearer.

This movie was terrible. Dumb, Boring and Stupid Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power.
It would be a waste of money to buy. On watchable best describes this movie. I fast forwarded all the way.

For sci-fi with a similar premise and a better script, watch the “Alien” films instead.

I liked Pandorum a lot more then I thought I would. The acting is OK I guess but other then the main 2 characters you don't care about the rest. Also, while the movie tries to be scary (sort of like Aliens), it really wasn't at all. Still, the concept, the twists, and the overall premise are pretty cool. Some decent action scenes although I think the producers reused some of the hallway sets a few too many times. I like these true science fiction action movies. Has a bit of a planet of the apes feel crossed with Aliens or even 2001 or 2010 (with people potentially going crazy in space). Worth a watch once at least.

I loved this B movie. A lost spaceship, lost memories, alien life-forms that aren't what they appear to be.Add some lovely, quirky characters. Top it all off with a surprise (and rather happy) ending.

Wikipedia gives a better summary than mine here is the link: ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandorum )
Basically one of the captains wakes up from hyper sleep and finds out that he has been in hyper sleep for close to 1000 years and that they actually crash landed on another earth like planet. Along the way he figures out that earth doesn't exist anymore and they are the last humans in existence. Also he finds some humans who have gone crazy and are cannibals now and have been breeding for a few centuries, and they try to kill and eat him. Lastly the ship crash landed on the planet and they are now deep under ocean. Keep in mind my summary is not in chronological order.

Violence: Pandorum has a 'Restricted' rating so the gore and violence is pretty graphic and gruesome.
